(en) Brazil, Coletivo Anarquista Luta de CLasses â CALC: Nesting Mother Earth San Gabriel RS: Four years without water, electricity, road, education, health, housing ... (pt)[machine translation]

We nesting families Terra Madre regional San Gabriel MST / RS came hereby opine on the situation of extreme insecurity and abandonment that we are subjected to almost four years. Bearing in mind that we are not an isolated case, but rather the product of a national policy favoring agribusiness at the expense of human rights, biodiversity and all ways of life and traditional cultures. ---- After resist long periods camped and have been part of historical journeys of struggle for land in RS, as the occupations of Southall in San Gabriel, farm Coconut War in South After we fought all the brutality of the murderer government Yeda associated with agribusiness and be together and at the forefront in many other journeys struggles of workers in the field and in the city for almost ten years, we the eighty-seven families settled in July 2009 live despite "settled" facing a series of difficulties leaving the neglect of the federal government and its supporters to hold a land reform that actually offers the conditions for our own families survive with dignity and work in the field.

We played in a settlement project 80 km from the city, no structure, no water, no light, no medical aid, no roads, and here were forgotten. Depend for a long period of humiliating and degrading basket INCRA, which sometimes contained up rotten powdered milk to sustain our children.

Medical and hospital assistance within the settlement never knew what it is. There is no follow up accordingly and transportation in emergencies only internal solidarity can solve, but a storm last December a companion hit in the head by a tabua waited 7 am followed by bleeding, so that led gushing blood in the back of a van, could get near a SAMU ambulance. This fellow just came out of the coma in March and even losing some movement was discharged back to where settlement through a joint effort was built in order their first wooden shed. It was for this wood by one of these boards that was reached in December temporal as these boards took over 3 years to come and perhaps are not as scarce to give the floor, so that fellow suffer and your family like every other one more pampeano harsh winter conditions without minimum housing.

Without running water that we hope not stop raining. In last year's drought had to dig holes in the fields in order to quench the thirst of our families, or seek long distances Sanghas dams and sharing the same water with all kinds of animals. INCRA officials, who did not appear so often that there are very few to serve the entire region, just had to watch it without the resources to change things.

Regarding education after much ado and promise of state and local government, no school and no internal roads our children from first to eighth grade even have to wake up at 3:30 am to catch a 6:00 a bus falling apart in the central area of ââthe settlement and travel another two hours for a distance of nearly 30 km to reach the nearest school. The hardness is such that classes are in full shift and every two days when it does not rain. In this context of overall insecurity it creates all conditions so that no young person remains in the field.

Without the internal roads is also frustrated because the production is impossible to carry cargo, including milk that is goal of most settlers produce here, but that is only a dream for that to make matters worse, the power key to this line of production exists only on projects that never go out of paper or speeches of a Light for All that the field does not quite "all". Although we had the roads and energy, indispensable, with four years of settlement have not accessed or a third of the meager credits that should receive minimally to invest in production.

In view of all this we have the full assurance that for agribusiness, for landlordism, and for all large fish farming does not work so well, because only in 2012 the federal government allocated about 100 billion reais to buy machines businessmen and landowners, transgenic seeds, and poisons multinational companies and well below polluting the land and concentrating. We also know that we live in inhuman situation is also the result of a strategy that the time left to face the pressure and began to focus on the struggles of the cabinet, leaving aside the basic organization and betting all the chips in power structures. A strategy that could go into enemy territory, but that the internal dynamics of this type of trigger was soon confused the enemy with helping him to manage the misery in much of the areas of Agrarian Reform.

For all this we decided to turn our indignation in struggle and organization. And ask for this solidarity with that struggle, militancy, other social movements, unions, basic, and supporters of the fight for Earth against agribusiness, to kickstart our achievements and to show that the oppressed and exploited our rights only FIGHT asserts. For if the state formerly used batons, tear gas, methods of torture, rubber bullets and tin to demobilize us, today he uses methods more subtle but no less effective as abandonment, bureaucracy, inflexibility, cooptation leaders, and isolation. And it is precisely to escape this situation we seek those who fight because we know it's only between those who find mates.
